As I work through writing and building the projects for my Bernina v7 Skill-Builder book, I am delighted with how much is there to use. Some of my projects are fairly simple in design because I want to concentrate on the techniques and design elements available in the software. Yesterday I worked through a project to develop a little fabric greeting card…or it could be a mug rug…about 5 inchs by 5 inches. It discusses using the art canvas Basic Vector Shapes, turn the heart shape into Advanced Applique, using Pattern Run to fancy it up, and working out the quilting in the hoop. Here is the resulting design, ready to be stitched out:
It is my hope that by the time someone works through all ten projects that they will be able to develop almost anything they want with it. I did set aside my hope to include making lace in the book, because I am thinking of writing a second book if this one is successful for more advanced projects. And in case you are wondering, I have no connection with Bernina other than I love their products. This software goes well beyond Bernina, and I thought this might be helpful to those of you who use it or want to use it. I had quite a struggle to learn it myself, so I thought I might be able to save you some time and frustration.
Sew Happy everyone!
